Becoming an Officiant through the American Marriage Ministries (amm) has been an amazing experience working with couples planning their ceremony. Spending time to focus the conversation on each person bring them together in a celebration that represents their uniqueness and love!
Inclusive Speaker & Trainer
I experienced twenty years in the education industry training and speaking on a variety of topics. It is a natural progression to speak and train on a subject I'm very passionate about. Inclusiveness!
Speaking on a topic is one thing. Training for implementations and actions, is another.

Passion leads to searching for knowledge and that's exactly what lead me to Equally Wed Pro's certification program. From learning the ABC's of LGBTQ+ to pronouns, Equally Wed Pro's program continued to sharpen by inclusive thinking and understanding.
Gay Wedding Institute Certified - 2015
14 Stories was the first LGBTQIA+ certification program I took. Developed and taught by Bernadette Smith, it was my launching pad of inclusive training and education.
